Our Selenium Vineyard Dry Riesling is crafted exclusively with ungrafted Geisenheim clone 239 Riesling grapes, famous for their citrus characteristics. We pick our grapes relatively ripe (22-23 Brix) in late October. The Riesling juice is fermented with native yeast at cold temperatures for thirty days to dryness, and then aged on lees in stainless steel tanks. We stir the wine on lees once or twice a week for five months to create a textured and full mouth feel. To preserve the wine’s fresh and bright profile, there’s no oak or malolactic fermentation.
The lion symbolizes strength of character. Our Dry Riesling portrays complex character balanced by bright citrus flavors and aromas of pear and jasmine. Ideal with Asian & European cuisines and a wide variety of seafood, cheeses and cold meats.
